WALDSTEIN

‘…[Beatson] shapes and weights every phrase with careful devotion, liquid sonority and a gentle cantabile’

­– Classic FM Magazine

Currently the Co-Artistic Director of the Swiss Chamber Music Festival at Ernen, Scottish pianist Alasdair Beatson works prolifically as a soloist and chamber musician across Europe and the UK. Described as ‘gleamingly poetic’ (The Glasgow Herald) and ‘ever inspiring’ (Guardian), his colleagues include Steven Isserlis, Pekka Kuusisto, Pieter Wispelwey, and the Doric and Gringolts quartets. Alasdair’s only solo recital in Australia for 2020 will culminate with Beethoven’s magnificent Waldstein Sonata.
